Value Added Tax (VAT)

SICOT is legally obliged to charge 25% Swedish VAT on all fees quoted. According to the European Union VAT Directive, VAT of the country hosting the conference must be charged. Article 53 of the VAT Directive states that "cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment and similar activities are taxed at the place where those services are physically carried out".

IMPORTANT NOTE: The presenting author must have registered and paid the conference registration fee to have his/her abstract included in the Final Programme. The International Conference Secretariat did not check if co-authors had registered. 


Participants who registered as trainees only received the confirmation of registration if they supplied evidence that they are under 40 years of age and actively engaged in a training programme. Please send the Conference Secretariat a copy of your passport or birth certificate and a letter from your supervisor.
